Unfolding Story


In my last post I shared my latest pen and ink drawing, of Golden Alexanders.  Here, I’ve blended it with an image of a painting I did earlier.  I like how it came out, and the words came to me as I worked on it.  I’m not sure why it scanned so blue, though.  The actual print has a white border.

It seems there are a lot of questions in my life right now and I really hate that.  But I realize that really, even when we think we know what is around the next corner, we don’t.  A wise person once told me that we must learn to live the question.  Furthermore, she pointed out that even if we get answers to current questions, we will certainly be given new questions to live with.

And so, our stories unfold.  We each have our own unique story, yet often our threads interweave.  Thus the tapestry is woven.  This fascinates me and keeps me watching and listening.

  1. I love the painting and the layering of the new one over the old. It’s perfect for the unfolding our story theme. Your friend had a great suggestion to live with the question. That’s so hard. Like you, I also want to figure everything out.

    1. Thank you so much for your feedback, Jordan! I am wrestling with this one and you’ve reassured me that I might be on the right track. Yeah, living with questions is hard, isn’t’ it?


  2. As always, I love your painting. Your words speak directly to me and all I feel and am going through. I’m trying to let all those questions just be and accept them as so. Thank you for letting me know I am not alone on my journey.

  3. I’m like that too – I hate to feel that Big Questioning. I guess that’s better than just settling for less life? But I like feeling somewhat settled, or at least like I’m on a path to somewhere.

  4. MelissaBlue,

    Certainty around old questions provides a bit of zest though…..things are never completely encapsulated, but it can be fun to knit them hats and mittens anyways.
